Hi @Brokenpeople777 welcome to the OfferUp Community forum. 😊
Thank you for asking this important question,
If you see anyone trying to sell any kind of drugs, illegal drugs or not please report them right away to OfferUp.
listing any drugs are against OfferUp guidelines, you can also report anyone trying to sell illegal drugs to your local authorities.

Thanks for responding. Yeah, I've seen certain things here and there that seemed strange. I will report anything I see.

Hi there @tdeluiz45! Yes, clones and plants are included in this list of prohibited items.

Of course they are! Its a federal crime to sell cannabis plants and clones!

@tdeluiz45 Cloning is the process of making a smaller copy of a specific plant. Basically, a clone is a little piece of plant that has been cut off (a “cutting”) from a parent plant and then given the opportunity to make roots of its own. that being said, it’s against OfferUp guidelines. when you get some time check out the OfferUp guidelines below this will help you moving forward. 😎🇬🇧🔚

@Hotrod I know what "clones" are but thanks for the history lesson. Although what I don't understand is why are they still being sold on here if their Prohibited Items as I've reported everything from "Ommp plants posted 6 months ago" "Clones for garden starts posted 3 months ago" and yet they are still on here!!!
